February 3


  1. the riptides were
    getting bad
    the lifeguards

    made us all get out
    one had to pull me out
    I couldn’t find my legs

    when I was young
    I was the last
    one out of the water

    at ten in
    San Clemente
    it was me

    and a couple
    of Marines
    and the waves

    slammed us to
    the beach and I
    would go back in

    but now after the
    lifeguard pulled
    me in - I was mad

    mad because for
    the first time ever
    I was afraid of the water

  2. I have lost my breath
    Blackness takes me as i sink
    Now the waves have won
